NEW YORK (AP) - Candy
lovers who watched prices rise
during the sugar shortage are
groaning at the prospect of
more bad news next year: the
20-cent chocolate bar.
This time, the culprit is the
cocoa bean.
THE NESTLE CO., INC. of
White Plains, N.Y. announced
yesterday that it was raising
wholesale prices on a variety
of chocolate products. At the
retail level, a typical chocolate
bar will go from 15 to 20 cents,
the company said.
The Nestle move was not un-
expected since the Hershey
Corp., M&M and Peter Paul an-
nounced similar prices boosts
late last month.
Figuring out the percentage
of increase gets complicated be-
cause the companies tried to
sweeten the impact of the high-
er prices by increasing the size
of their candy bars.
A NESTLE milk chocolate bar,
for example, will grow from 11/8

to 1% ounces; a Hershey milk
chocolate bar is going from 1.2
to 1.35 ounces. The Nestle bar
is smaller - 1% is equal to
1.25.
The smaller, cheaper Nestle
bar costs 13.3 cents per ounce;
the larger, higher-price variety
will cost 16 cents per ounce;
the increase is 20 per cent. For
Hershey, the per-ounce price in-
crease works out to 19 per cent.
Nestle said the wholesale
price increases will bo into ef-
fect early in 1977, after stocks
of the15-cent chocolatesbars
are used up. The increase is
expected at the retail level next
spring.
ALL THE COMPANIES blam-
ed higher costs for the increas-
es, noting that cocoa beans
which sold for 75 cents a pound
a year ago now are going for
close to $1.50. The firms said
the chocolate increases would
have come sooner if it had not
been for the drop in the price
of sugar which has declined

about 90 per cent from 1974
levels.
"Sugar is down, but it is a
less important cost factor than
cocoa," said a spokesman forI
M&M. "Labor, packagind and
_nergy costs have been creeping
up, but cocoa is the one factor
that finally threw us over the
edge and made us raise
prices."
Most of the world's cocoa
beans are grown in Africa and
the crop has been tight for the
past two years. At the same.
time, the demand has been
strong, causing the price in-
crease.
